Enterprise Value Stream Mapping

OEIS researchers have provided training in and facilitated hundreds of value stream mapping events. This proven method allows multiple supply chain contributors to collectively develop a map of the supply chain that illustrates the product and information flow as well key performance metrics in an easy to read format.

Utilizing the current state map, the value stream map team can then define an improved future state and implementation plan to optimize supply chain performance.

Value Stream Mapping


The enterprise value stream mapping approach provides the following benefits:

  • A concise view of the supply chain noting critical areas
  • The system understanding needed to focus limited resources at particular companies to provide "best bang for the buck"
  • Communication tool for the customer, prime contractor, and suppliers
  • A "living" document to monitor and manage improvements in the supply chain
